The Changing Landscape of Password Management

There have been a lot of interesting developments in Password Management since NIST, National Institute of Standards and Technology (a division of US Dept. of Commerce), revised the 14-year-old guidelines last November with final updates issued in June 2017.  The now-retired 72-year-old author of the original 2003 NIST, Bill Burr, was quoted  in The Wall Street Journal as saying “Much of what I did I now regret.”  Great Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre has also chimed in with similar updated recommendations on Password Security. Many of the recommendations are targeted to IT system administrators regarding steps they should be taking.
